    [font=verdana, arial, helvetica]Running xp pro and in the disk managment program i have one disk listed.

    Disk0 basic 9.36gig online. It has 141mb as a healthy partition, drive c: 2gig FAT healthy system and then 7.22gig unallocated.

    The 7.22gig used to be drive d: but i deleted it as there was nothing on it i wanted.

    How do i get this unused space added onto the drive c. I can activate it as a partition alright and call it drive d but my windows is installed onto drive c: which has very little space left. Hence getting these "low disk space on drive C:" messages.

    Anybody have any ideas..

    Here you go...

    Though with a 9 GB drive, you could buy a new much larger drive, copy your data from the existing one to the new one, reformat the old one and use it as the system disk and the new drive for your apps and data...for not much more than the software that will do what you want to do.
